Cathal Brugha Barracks, Storage Building

The adjacent new 2 storey army storage building aligns with archive building on plan and is finished in a matching brick skin. The existing building is carefully restored and sensitively adjusted to enable new links between the existing rooms and the proposed new building to the rear using new access links and stairs inserted into the existing building to enable these new connections. The new building has been designed to sit sensitively into the existing landscape of military buildings in the barracks complex. This has an innovative and striking roof-scape delineated with projecting roof lights that resonate with the rhythm of the architecture of the surounding buildings in the barracks.
